A song of ascents. Of David.1 I was glad when they said to me,
“We will go to the house of the Lord.”
2 Now we are standing,
within your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 O Jerusalem, built close-packed,
like a city without breach or gap,
4 to you do the tribes come,
the tribes of the Lord,
as the law has ordained for Israel,
there to give thanks to the Lord.
5 There once stood thrones of justice
even thrones of the household of David.
6 Pray that all may be well with Jerusalem,
and well with those who love you,
7 well within your ramparts,
and well within your palaces.
8 For the sake of my brethren and friends,
I will wish you now prosperity:
9 for the sake of the house of the Lord
our God, I will seek your good.
